By Mike Simpson

TS-Tools is a legendary suite of utilities for DTG's Train Simulator Classic (TS 2022). This suite enables advanced users to carry out many improvements/changes to the default simulator.

This is v1.0.82, the final version published by Mike before his retirement. TS-Tools will not be updated further and is not supported by Mike anymore. Here at RWA we have knowledgeable users who can answer questions and provide help, but this is not official support.
